git push hangs after Total line


My git push is hanging after appearing to complete the push. I am going git push

Counting objects: 51, done.
Delta compression using up to 2 threads.
Compressing objects: 100% (47/47), done.
Writing objects: 100% (47/47), 27.64 MiB | 6.47 MiB/s, done.
Total 47 (delta 4), reused 0 (delta 0)

It hangs here and I have to control-c to get back to command line. I have made several commits in the past with this project with no issues. I have tried other repos on my machine and they work fine. What is going on here?



Maximum size in bytes of the buffer used by smart HTTP transports when POSTing data to the remote system. For requests larger than this buffer size, HTTP/1.1 and Transfer-Encoding: chunked is used to avoid creating a massive pack file locally. Default is 1 MiB, which is sufficient for most requests.

Note that raising this limit is only effective for disabling chunked transfer encoding and therefore should be used only where the remote server or a proxy only supports HTTP/1.0 or is noncompliant with the HTTP standard. Raising this is not, in general, an effective solution for most push problems, but can increase memory consumption significantly since the entire buffer is allocated even for small pushes.


  1. Increase the Git buffer size to the largest individual file size of your repo

  2. git config --global http.postBuffer 157286400

  3. Refer to the resolution of Git push fails - client intended to send too large chunked body for ngnix reverse proxy configuration. Increase this parameter to the largest individual file size of your repo.

  4. Bypass the outbound proxy as explained on Can't clone or pull due to a git outbound proxy
